Urakami, Jacqueline – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2019
This study investigates how graphical and content list type overviews with and without navigation restrictions affect the cognitive load experienced by a learner searching for information in a hypertext. The study used a 2x2 between factor design with the factors navigability (restricted vs. non-restricted) and overview format (graphical vs.…

Sullivan, Sarah; Gnesdilow, Dana; Puntambekar, Sadhana – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2011
The incorporation of various textual resources into scientific inquiry is important for establishing background knowledge. Many of these resources are now presented in hypertext or hypermedia environments, which require students to comprehend and actively integrate information from multiple sources. Further, numerous practices employed by readers…

Firat, Mehmet; Kabakci, Isil – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2010
The interactional feature of hypermedia that allows high-level student-control is considered as one of the most important advantages that hypermedia provides for learning and teaching. However, high-level student control in hypermedia might not always lead to high-level learning performance. The learner is likely to experience navigation problems…

Morozov, Andrew – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2009
This study contributes to research investigating the effects of individual differences and online instructional design on learning. Learning performance was compared across three hypertext formats incorporating different navigational aids. The hierarchical map represented the physical structure of the hypertext in one condition, while the network…

Dabbagh, Nada; Blijd, Cecily Williams – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2009
This study is a third in a series of studies that examined students' information seeking and problem solving behaviors while interacting with one of two types of web-based representations of an ill-structured instructional design case: hierarchical (tree-like) and heterarchical (network-like). A Java program was used to track students' hypermedia…

Waniek, Jacqueline; Schafer, Thomas – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2009
The goal of this study was to examine the role of domain and system knowledge on learner performance in reading and information search in hypermedia. Previous studies have shown that prior knowledge is an important individual factor for effective hypermedia use. However, current research lacks a full understanding of how these two aspects of prior…

Hasegawa, Shinobu; Kashihara, Akihiro; Toyoda, Jun'ichi – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2003
Learning with existing web-based resources has become popular and important, for example, in cases where there are diverse learning resources dealing with the same learning topic. However, many resources do not have a clear description of their characteristics, which makes it difficult for learners to select appropriate resources. This article…

Muller-Kalthoff, Thiemo; Moller, Jens – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2003
To counter user disorientation and cognitive overload, hypertext environments often incorporate navigational aids in the form of graphical overviews of the hypertext structure. The aim of the present experimental investigation of learning in hypertext environments was to examine the impact of such graphical overviews on learning achievement in…

Hartley, Kendall; Bendixen, Lisa D. – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2003
This is a descriptive study that analyzes learners' use of comprehension aids such as objectives, a glossary and links between pages in a hypermedia tutorial. Students read a short hypermedia tutorial on the topic of E. coli. Relationships between the use of the comprehension aids and individual characteristics such as metacognitive awareness and…

Beasley, Robert E.; Waugh, Michael L. – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1997
A study of 59 undergraduates identified predominant patterns of navigation in studying hypermedia lessons. The study found participants employed an initial systematic, top-down, left-to-right (depth first) strategy to ensure full coverage, then a more spotty and less systematic review. Argues that culture, language, biases, organization of the…

Dias, Paulo; Sousa, Ana Paula – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1997
A study of 22 high school students who used a prototype navigational map for browsing hypermedia documents found that the tool was not effective. Supporting previous research the study found the use of maps resulted in poorer performance, less use of the system, lower perceived control, and poorer development of mental representations. (PEN)

McDonald, Sharon; Stevenson, Rosemary J. – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1999
Describes two studies of college students that examined the effects of navigational aids on navigation and learning in hypertext. The first examined the effects of spatial maps and textual contents lists on students' ability to locate information; the second experiment compared a spatial map, a conceptual map and no aid on both navigation and…
